Blogger's Quilt Festival

Thanks to Amy's Creative Side  for once again hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  I encourage you to head over to Amy's for a wonderful show of hundreds of different and unique quilts from other bloggers. Pull up a seat, grab your favorite beverage and enjoy everyone's talents and creativity!

My Fall Quilt Festival entry is this Western wall hanging made for a Benefit Auction.

Headin' Home!
This will be auctioned off in our small Southern Idaho community next week. It will help raise funds for a family needing to take their baby to Boston to a special surgeon. You can read all about BrynLee 2 Boston in my recent blog post. 

I was thrilled to be able to go to my stash and use a piece "Gradiations" fabric by Caryl Bryer Fallert for the background. A couple of years ago, I bought 4 different color combinations of hers at a quilt show, but had not had the opportunity to use any . . . yet.

The colors in this fabric were perfect for a sunset!
Silhouette by Cutter Creations and quilt hangers by Summer Sky Creations.
You can find many more details about the products in this little quilt here.

Thanks again to Amy for hosting the Festival.  What a great opportunity to enjoy everyone's talented contributions!

I love your quilt--great colors and great quilting. I had to check to see where you are from because your motif is so different from anything I've seen done in my area, which is the northeast coast. We don't have a lot of cowboys here. Nor quite the same sunsets as out west.

Now that is so cool. Love the fabric you used and the silhouettes are so life like. It should pull in a large sum.
